The students at Whittier had a ton of fun contributing their ideas to the art boundary. Thanks to photographer Stephanie Inman for “capturing the energy and delight of the day.” (Kathleen Lacey, City of Boise) See more at our photo gallery.
From the city’s Building Boise Newsletter: Idaho Smart Growth awarded their 2014 GrowSmart Award for Community Excellence to the Cultural Arts Plan for Boise’s 30th Street Neighborhood. The plan was funded through the City’s “Percent-forArt” program and created by artist Stephanie Inman along with City team members Karen Bubb (Arts & History) and Kathleen Lacey (PDS) and members of the Veteran’s Park Neighborhood Association. Two ongoing projects from the plan are Water Chutes and the Whittier Elementary Artful Boundary. Water Chutes, a sculpture by artist Dirk Anderson, will be installed in the Stewart Ave./Whitewater Park Blvd. roundabout. The Whittier Elementary Artful Boundary will be designed and installed in 2015 under the guidance of artists Marge and Dennis Proksa. The project will integrate design concepts produced by Whittier students and the community.
